    Got mine tinted yesterday. 15% Llumar Pinnacle Ceramic. $425 and worth it in the brutal Alabama heat.

    Thanks. Got the 5% strip at the top. They almost have me talked into doing either the air 80 or a 40-50% ceramic on the windshield

    The air80 is great for heat rejection;).

    43% heat rejection is what it does and makes a huge difference in the ac required when driving:).

    Something to consider(y).

    Definitely considering it, that’s a big ole windshield for a lot of heat to come through!

    Maybe that’ll help your thought process(y).

    Wow, nice. Mine isn’t near that good, and I purposely keep the auto climate set at 73 or 74 degrees.

    77 F here is what I use as a setting;).

    Comfortable enough until I get home where we have solar and the house is a cool 74 F(y).

    Came out really nice! 35 is all that’s allowed in CT. Wish I could have gone darker on mine.

    Just tinted as well. 35% in the front and 15% in the rear doors and hatch.

    Guy qouted $150 for the front windshield clear ceramic (40% heat reduction). Is that a good price?

    Looks good, but a bit dark for Cali ;).

    That’s a good price for the windshield (I had ours done for $200 at the same time the other tint was done):).

    Good luck and keep us posted (y).

    Lol I picked up that same GR Sport model last week when I as in Akihabara, Japan. I’m surprised the rear hatch lifts up. Nice!

    Sorry for the late reply. I purchased it from one of the department stores. I forgot what it’s called but it had 6 floors with a bunch of different vendors on each floor selling a bunch of anime figurines. This was near all of the Initial D model cars.

    What did you end up paying and what type of tint (metallic or ceramic)?

For 6 side windows and rear hatch for 449. In Alabama installer said front shield is illegal but we did install clear Pinnacle for additional 229. Boy what a difference in heat in the interior. There is a big price difference between grades. See attached for differences.
